An interactive public art installation across the US-Mexico border by Rafael Lozano-Hemmer.
Open to the public
November 13 - 24, 2019
Every night, 6:30 to 11:00 PM
Bowie High School, El Paso and
Parque Chamizal, Ciudad Juárez
Three interactive stations on each side of the border will control powerful searchlight beams using a small dial wheel. When lights from any two stations are directed at each other, microphones and speakers automatically switch-on to allow participants to talk with one another, creating cross-border conversations.
The project is curated by Kerry Doyle and León de la Rosa, with programming direction by Edgar Picazo. While a diverse schedule of invited guests will open the installation each evening, everybody is welcome to participate for free.
